Series 11 Episode 3: Local energy solutions for new housing and urban developments

Series 11 Episode 3: Local energy solutions for new housing and urban developments

In this episode we’re looking at how local energy solutions can be used for new housing developments and wider new build and regeneration projects. Can clever software optimise demand, storage, and generation to make these developments more energy independent? Such developments will still have a grid connection, but will be less reliant on the grid and could even operate independently from the grid should the grid go down? And what are the business models and commercial arrangements for such developments? To explore this area, Jon Slowe is joined by Philip Gladek, Founder and CEO at Netherlands-based Spectral; Dan Nicholls, Managing Director at SNRG, based in the UK; and Delta-EE expert Jeremy Harrison.
